This is yet another version of my ‘Gerry’ dress which is a hack of the Dartmouth Wrap top by Cashmerette into a dress with a variety of skirt options. Once again I used the half circle skirt from the Penny dress by Sew Over It.
The fabric is from my stash and is another Cobra Corsage print, this time on a fine viscose jersey 4-way-stretch-double-crepe. There were 3 metres in the stash – enough to make my favourite version of ‘Gerry’.
Cutting out was a trial as the fabric is so fine and slippery. It stretches every which way so in an effort to gain control I pinned the layers to my corrugated cardboard cutting out board.
Construction was straightforward as usual. I may have to go back and put some form of stabiliser in the waist seam as the weight of the skirt is stretching out the length of the bodice. The v neckline may end up at my waist and I will definitely need to wear a camisole underneath!
I have just one more length of this fabulous print left in my stash – an ivory background cotton lawn. I will retrieve that later this month and hope there is sufficient to make a long sleeved blouse.
